Views
Thailand's premier skipped an anti-corruption panel hearing into negligence charges that could lead to her ousting, as her government turned to the UN for help to resolve a deadly political crisis.

Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra is fighting for her political survival as pressure mounts on several fronts -- in mass protests on the streets, in the courts and from the National Anti-Corruption Commission.

The backdrop is a longstanding struggle between a royalist establishment -- backed by the judiciary and the military -- and Yingluck's billionaire family which has strong support in the northern half of Thailand.
